Have you founded a nature-based enterprise*, or you are at an early-stage of your development with a good idea and need support to take you to the next level?

The Nature-Based Accelerator, developed by Good Ideas and Glasgow City Council, is a pilot programme to support early-stage impactful nature-based business and social enterprise that could make a positive environmental, social, and economic change in Glasgow.

The programme aims to encourage more local and resilient nature-based economies, create more green jobs, and help us achieve our net-zero targets. One of the main focusses of the pilot is on how we can use innovative enterprise ideas to help improve and maintain Glasgow’s open spaces.

*A nature-based enterprise has a broader definition than you might initially think. It can include many different types of organisation such as social enterprises, a collective, charities or even a for-profit business. The key criteria is that nature is used either directly or indirectly as a fundamental part of their product, service or process whilst also supporting climate change, health and wellbeing and biodiversity policy agendas. Examples can include food or other community growing; beekeeping; nature-focused landscape architecture; eco-tourism; urban forestry; biomaterials; carbon off-setting; vocational & skills training plus lots more.
